Walkin' over Medicine should be required reading for any health practitioner who treats African American patients.

— Library Journal

Representing more than twenty years of anthropological research, Walkin' over Medicine, originally published by Westview Press in 1993, presents the results of Loudell F. Snow's community-based studies in Arizona and Michigan, work in two urban prenatal clinics, conversations and correspondence with traditional healers, and experience as a behavioral scientist in a pediatrics clinic. Snow also visited numerous pharmacies, grocery stores, and specialty shops in several major cities, accompanied families to church services, and attended weddings, baptisms, graduations, and funerals.

Loudell F. Snow is emerita professor of anthropology at Michigan State University.

The United States health care system shortchanges our largest minority-African Americans-and Loudell F. Snow, an anthropologist who spent many years working with black patients, shows how that failure occurs . . . Walkin' over Medicine should be required reading for any health practitioner who treats African American patients.
